Pours amber. Big yeast aroma. The yeast smells and tastes much more like the strains used in Hefeweizens rather than most belgian beers Ive had. Still very good. Fruit, malt, wheat-yeast.... goes down very smooth.

Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Appearance is hazy light brown with decent sparkle, 2-finger width foamy beige head with good retention and fair lacing. Aroma is light banana, clove. Taste is light banana, clove and peppery spiciness. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and mildly sweet and yeasty finish. Overall, a nice beer without huge, bold flavors or complexity, and slightly over-carbonated, but very good nonetheless.

PhillyCraft (6309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Backlog, On tap, pours a hazy orange with large soapy head. Stuck around for a good bit. Nose of plum, grape, belgian yeast, florals, and spice. Flavor was rich malt, dark fruits, wood, and old stuff. Medium body with average carbonation. A nice Belgian on a cold night.

johnnnniee (3896) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle from a Lazy dog. slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge bubbly frothy off white head that takes forever to recede. Clove and spice lay heavy on the nose with some faint bready maltiness. The flavor is sweet bready malt light earthy big clove and peppery spice. Well made beer, but its a bit heavy on the clove and spice for my tastes.

Nice tart aromas of apricot and yeast. A little barnyard. Pours red brown and clear with an off-white head with tiny bubbles. Nice sour favors of leather and licorice. Short sour finish and good fizzy mouthfeel. Pretty balanced.

Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Uptown. Pours hazy amber-orange with a large beige head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, cherry, peach. Flavor is thinner than I expected... tangy metal, yeasty, little fruit notes (unlike the nose), grasses. Meh. Had potential.
